Type strg+b on windows, cmd+b on mac.

Or look in “view” and enable ‘show bounding marks’ or something along those lines.

Happened to me once too..

You can scale without the bounding box showing by using the Scale Tool or Free Transform Tool instead of the Selection Tool. The bounding box appears when you click on the object with those tools.
